Tis Time for “Torture,” Princess Anime Storyline:
In the course of an ongoing conflict between the Imperial Army and the Hell Horde, the Princess of the Empire has been captured along with her sacred sword, Ex. Since regular torture is forbidden under a treaty on the treatment of prisoners of war, the great inquisitor Torture Tortura is always coming up with new and unusual “torture methods”, mostly involving tempting food and snacks from Japanese culture, to get the princess to talk.
